There's a lot in The Left Hand of Darkness, but the thing I got out of it is there are some things that can't be learned by being told the answer. I could tell you what the left hand of darkness is right now, but if you didn't read the book, you'd be none the wiser. Some things can only be taught through experiencing it yourself, or through the proxy of storytelling.

Storytelling is the greatest tool we have for passing down wisdom to the next generation. Ursula LeGuin, we celebrate what you have taught us and will continue to teach us, and we mourn your passing.

Nicholas von Hoffman, provocative journalist and author, dies at 88.

My bookshelves still hold a copy of Trout Fishing in the Reflecting Pool, or, The Fireside Watergate, which I now learn was actually the first of two books he wrought in collaboration with Garry Trudeau.
